How can I make a claim for a serious personal injury?
A serious personal injury is a life-changing injury suffered as a result of a motor accident that leaves a person with a permanent disability, requiring assistance in their everyday life. The NIISQ - National Injury Insurance Scheme Queensland - helps support victims of such injuries.
The physical, emotional, and financial strains of a serious personal injury on an individual and their family can be devastating, and the cost of care for a seriously injured person over their lifetime can be in the millions of dollars.
Serious personal injuries include:
- permanent spinal cord injuries
- severe burns
- traumatic brain injuries
- permanent blindness, and
- multiple amputations.
